Reflections for Trooper Tony Vian Radulescu
Trooper Radulescu, you are an inspiration. You've come to this country like myself in search of a better life and an opportunity to shine but you had achieved so much. You gained a lot of respect from your colleagues in the law enforcement community and the citizens of this state. For this I applaud you.
Know that your fellow countrymen from Romania and Moldova are proud of you. You showed that we can be just as good as them.
Sa te odihneasca bunul Dimnezeu in pace si sa-ti fie usoara tarina.

Tony - know that you are still loved by many. If what you stand for that is not what we all strive for dialy, I don't know what we should then.
Tony - please take care of my son Nicholas Jennings who now has the watch. I have done what I can, buying his backup, but make sure he wears his vest and goes by the book. Mom and I love him so much as much as does our grand so to all that pray for tony, please pray for my son, Nick too - Badge 908 - Vancouver-Chealis area.
I Believe that Jesus has a plan for all of us and that those who serve his chirldren will most assuradly see God's Face.

To the love of my life,
Not a day goes by that I do not think of you and miss you so much. I know your safe and in the presence of God's love. It does not make the pain of losing you any less.
You would have been so proud of the HERO's honor you received along with all of your fallen in Washington DC this year.
It was a fitting tribute to a man who gave to his country and then his community.
I miss your wonderful smile and the deep love we shared. I love you and you are always with me in my heart.
I love you Tony,

I had the honor to hear the story of this HERO Trooper Tony Radulescu from his co-workers and brothers few weeks ago in Washington DC at the Police Memorial vigil.I was very saddened to find out how tragic he died in the line of duty and also I dedicated my 5k police memorial run to him.Talking to his co-workers who were wearing t-shirts with his name at vigil revealed that he was a remarkable man and dedicated officer and friend who's still alive in their memory.He was taken too soon from the life and job he loved.His sacrifice will always be honored and he will never be forgotten! Rest in peace!

I am a private citizen living in Port Orchard, Wa. This trooper pulled me over just outside of where he lived. By the end of the conversation, even tho he ticketed me (I also received another ticket an hour before, so I was pretty upset), by the end of the conversation I didn't want him to leave. I wanted to keep chatting. He was a really nice guy. I was also only 23 years old and naturally scared of any police officer, but the way he conducted himself was what i believe to be the ideal conduct of a police officer.

Though I never knew him, he was part of my Law Enforcement family and I will mourn this deep loss the rest of my life. My heart aches with all the losses we have suffered, and continue to suffer, through the years. God is our only peace through such incidents. May family & friends feel the presence of the "God of All Comfort" as they endure the distressing days ahead. I join them in their agonizing grief & remember them in my prayers.
Another senseless tragedy
Another day of grief,
Another day of praying
To help us find relief.
Relief from bitter anguish
Relief from rage so great,
Relief from lenient justice
Which continues to seal our fate.
Relief from heartache’s torment
As we continue on,
Oh, the awesome loss of brotherhood
Now that you are gone.
Though our hearts are deeply broken
And our tears forever flow,
There’s a comforting assurance
That now with God you go.
We know that you are welcome
Now at Heaven’s gate,
While meeting brothers & sisters
Who also met such fate.
The family of Law Enforcement
Knows no distance here or there,
And we recall in comfort
You await us there.
